I feel as if we should bring the term ‘squick back’
The difference between:
SQUICK: Something that makes you at the very least uneasy
TRIGGER: Something tthat makes you have horrible flashbacks, give you anxiety/panic attacks, makes you hurt, makes you relapse if you have an addiction
“Mpreg squicks me out, I don’t understand how someone gets off on that.”
“I don’t like talking about drug addiction, it triggers me”
And something that squicks some one may full on trigger someone else & something that triggers someone may just squick someone else
“Rape is something that has happened to me, and it triggers me when I see someone being dominated as it reminds me of my experience, how about you?
“It’s squicky to me, but I’m not triggered by it tbh”
TL;DR: The term ‘squick’ should be brought back
